...this page, while late, would have been up by 5pm yesterday if not for my day job. Food (stamps) for thought.

Anyone who knows Superman well, especially Alex Ross' recreation of the first meeting of Superman and Lois Lane --

 photo Superman-Lois-firstmeeting-Ross.jpg

-- should see what I did here: fail, perhaps valiantly, to be Ross' and Virgil Finlay's bastard lovechild.

But I'm still pretty damn proud of this one. I've known this homage was coming the whole time. I really enjoyed flipping the gender roles and power position, though it was a bit of a struggle to make it work, since Jack is MUCH larger than Lois Lane.

I don't think there's another page I've been this excited to finally get to draw. Smiley face., I don't know if anyone will believe me, but when I wrote this scene, how I was going to draw all Kathryn's nudity was the furthest thing from my mind. It all seemed very ethereal and theoretical; in practice, I've ended up surprising myself with how HBO it's all gotten.

Jack wants to believe Kathryn, but then he gets mad at himself for almost "falling under her spell" here -- that super-angry face he makes in panel 2 is more for him letting his father down (in his mind) than anything else.

Luckily for Jack's sanity, Artemis the urban legend is famous for Highlander-ing. This is why he's pretty cavalier about shooting first and asking questions later -- he's not like this with mortal suspects.

As for anatomy: I sketch in blue pencil what I *think* I remember, then often use photo reference to double-check (it should surprise no one at this point that I keep two Playboys and a Hustler with my art and anatomy books).

Regarding Kathryn's current winning of Show Some Skin contest: all I can say is that I will forever curse Nicky for pussying out in issue #1 and straining to look Erica in the eyes.

As usual, COMMISSIONS ARE OPEN! Send me a PM, or hit me up on Facebook or Twitter. My rates are reasonable -- don't reason a cow.

Soup sock,

And here I was hopping Erica was going to start a 1 up contest and show more.

If you can hold on 'til year 5 of the storyline (which I've almost written up to, btw), Erica outflashes Kathryn in a big way. I mean, REALLY big.

Well, that's one way to make sure she won't harm you...
Well, for a little while, anyway.

He's lucky she's already tired from resurrecting in the bushes, otherwise she'd kill him before he gets her to the interrogation room.

...not really spoilers if you've already seen the cover for this issue.
